Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy
When Amanda Knox went on trial in Italy for the murder of her roommate, the entire world stopped to watch. Well, at least a portion of Italy and a sizable chunk of the United States did. It was, at the time--and the time was not long ago--pretty big news. Hayden Panettiere, now long devoid of her cheerleader outfit, will be playing the role of Knox in the film. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the film will be looking at the question of whether or not Knox actually committed the crime or if the prosecutors were, as Knox alleged, wholly incorrect.
